Some other features that caught our attention: By loosening a friction knob, you can rotate the fan to point it wherever you’d like, and the handle on top looks quite sturdy. Best of all: the front is easily removable so you can clean the inside of the fan.
It’s been our experience that if you can’t clean it, there’s no place for it in the shop. Though our shop is usually quite clean, it’s no accident.
The Vornado Heavy-Duty fan MSRPs for $100, but it’s available for around $95 from a wide variety of vendors as well as Amazon.
